Elementary Curriculum Standards

NAD Math Overview K-8

Recently the North American Division implemented some big changes into our math curriculum. Teachers have been working this into classroom routines, often with ease but sometimes with difficulty. Our concerns have been heard. The NAD Office of Education asked classroom teachers from across the division to help answer some of our questions and provide support for us. Together, we studied the issues and gathered resources that will help all of us lead our students to become “thinkers rather than mere reflectors of other men’s thoughts”.

Big Ideas, Our 6-8 Math Program

How can teachers build mathematically powerful students who can solve real-life problems, communicate their understanding to others, and perform well on standardized achievement tests? This book provides teachers a proven model for ‘balancing’ computational skills with conceptual understanding and problem-solving activities in their mathematics instruction. This model is used successfully with any math program already in place.
This book outlines the 5‑step model:

  • 1. Math Review
  • 2. Conceptual Understanding
  • 3. Problem-Solving and Math Application
  • 4. Mastery of Math Facts
  • 5. Common Formative Assessment
